Under the watchful eye of board-certified Doctor of Internal Medicine Greg Flippo, Prescription 2 Fitness?s personal trainers and medical aestheticians improve appearances with cosmetic procedures and weight-loss programs. Botox and Juv?derm injections can rewrite the oft-drawn-out stories that aging faces tell, and lasers show off their many talents by stunting hair growth, fading tattoos, or improving the appearance of damaged and wrinkled skin. Dynamic personal-training sessions and nutrition counseling fill noggins with healthy meal ideas and debunk the myth that steaks are vegetables. Clients can feast upon prepared meal plans brimming with local ingredients, which can be tweaked to feed all manner of nutrimental needs, from bulking up bodybuilders to streamlining silhouettes with the help of HCG.
Jim Ostrosky, erstwhile fashion consultant for the local Fox affiliate and fashion writer for the Birmingham News, now brings his eye for texture and color to bear on the manes of clients at his intimate home salon. More than three decades in the industry inform his oversight of a team of stylists who wield organic products from Aveda instead of threatening hair into obedience with vats of liquid nitrogen. As they craft new 'dos, the stylists employ advanced techniques such as halo brick and paneling to create highlights or keratin smoothing treatments to banish frizz. In addition to snipping locks into classic coiffures, the professionals delve into new styles and trends, such as fusion and micro link hair extensions.
Helmed by a dynamic duo, Classic Aesthetics combines expertise in skincare and massage therapy to deliver head-to-toe beauty and relaxation treatments. The center rejuvenates wrinkle- or acne-marked visages with more than 20 facial treatments, including microdermabrasion, PCA chemical peels, and face-lifting microcurrent treatments. A resident massage therapist assuages aches and pains with customized bodywork and chases away stress by kneading muscles with fluid hand movements.
Knowing that cosmetic procedures can sometimes feel daunting, Dr. Melanie L. Petro makes it her first priority to put her guests at ease. This welcoming environment is established with fresh flowers, a wellspring of empathy, and a friendly team of registered nurses, skincare specialists, and support staff.
After thoroughly explaining the treatments, which range from lifts of all types to a host of non-surgical palliatives, Dr. Petro puts to work the same medical acumen that earned her a position as a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. Aging, cellulite, and spider veins run for the hills under the withering gaze of various medical-grade lasers, and long-beleaguered complexions spring back to life like a phoenix on a trampoline after med-spa treatments, such as chemical peels or IPL photofacials.
